Description of the Challenge Padding Starter Kit
Thinking of trying your luck with padding? Many printers, copy shops, binderies, and artisans become interested in creating their own pads. There are lots of user friendly presses available to create pads, and to do so with great precision. However, there is also the need to use some specialized gear when making pads of all kinds. This is why the Challenge Padding Starter Kit is a very wise investment. The Challenge Padding Starter Kit introduces new padders to the most effective tools available. They will get a large tub of top quality padding adhesive, a padding knife, a pad counter, and a pad brush. Clearly, you have to know just what to do with these devices to get the most out of them. To keep it simple: The padding brush is used to apply the specialty adhesive. The adhesive is the bonding agent that is applied to the "spine" of the pad as it sits locked in the specialty press. The pad counter is the device that uses an adjustable metal bracket to divide stacks of paper into the appropriately sized pads, and the pad knife is what severs the glue and allows a large stack of sheets to be padded and separated accordingly.
So, you can purchase the Challenge Padding Starter Kit and a padding press and then choose the paper you want to use to make the pad. You then ensure that the press has allowed you to align all of the pages completely. Finally, you use the press to clamp down the pages into position. Some presses will let you keep the sheets in place, and others require the pages to be locked together and removed. This can be challenging when you are seeking to create bulk stacks of paper and then cut them into place. For instance, some presses will handle up to 16" stacks of paper at one time. This is ideal when using something like the Challenge Padding Starter Kit as it will allow you to put all of the tools to work. However, you can still choose the paper, align it in the press, count out the sheets, and use the counter to "set" the height of that particular page count. You then apply the adhesive and wait for it to set. When ready, use the special counter to identify the right thickness for each pad, and then cut it loose with your pad knife! It can be fun and cost efficient to make pads, and this kit gets you off to a good start.
